The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How Does This 5 Day Split Look?

    Monday: Legs/Abs
    Tuesday: Chest/Triceps
    Wednesday: Back/Biceps
    Thursday: Shoulders/Abs
    Friday: Rest
    Saturday: Arms/Dead lifts
    Sunday: Rest

    I'm bulking and I think I'm gonna go with this split for a while. Anyone see any problems or am I good to go?

    I would drop the Saturday ďarmsĒ and just perform Deadlifts.
    What am I on?
    My back for the bench press.
    My feet for the squat.
    What are you on?

    I agree with him. Why? Because you have already worked your arms during the week. Also they have been indirectly worked in numerous other exercises. I would either just DL as Ironman said or put calves in there so you can focus all of your energy on quads and hams on leg day. I think the routine looks pretty good overall.

    It looks similiar to mine, but I drop the shoulders day completely and do a day of just bis and tris (I work chest by itself and back by itself), you could throw in shoulders if you want but I have found direct shoulder work to be counter productive. You could throw in traps and calves with deads and you're good to go

    Drop extra arms day and do deads on your leg day, trust me it kills but it is worth it.
